Student Engagement


Allansford & District Primary School has a Student Engagement Policy (SEP) that articulates the school community’s shared expectations in the areas of student engagement, attendance and behaviour.

 

The policy supports the rights and states the expectations of every member of the school community to engage in and promote a safe and inclusive educational environment.

 

Allansford & District Primary School is committed to improving the levels of engagement of all students in their learning. We develop in each individual a sense of wellbeing and connectedness to school and peers. This is reflected in their attitudes to school, positive behaviours and their learning outcomes.
